Vaccination to Prevent Blackleg.
The Oklahoma Experiment Station
begun the free distribution of black-
leg vaccine in 19(0 and has con*
tinned since that time to furnish vac-
cine free of any charge to th > stock-
men of Oklahoma. Ever/ man who
handle* cattle Is familiar in u gener
al way with this disease so that a
general dc-scrlpt^m of the symptoms
and nature of the disease is not
necessary at this time. Stockmen
know that young cattle, and espe-
cially those in good flesh, are the
companied by slight swelling. The
pig rubs its nose, sniffles and shows
In various ways that the diseased
spots irritate and burn. Gradually
these diseased spots break out as
small sores, occasionally sloughing
out to form ulcers of considerable
size. These sores or ulcers may oc-
cur on any part of the head and oc-
casionally they will extend over the
sides and uuder part of the body.
Since the disease Is contagious and
spreads Easily, all pigs showing any
signs of the trouble should be sepa-
rated from the healthy ones. The
following preparations should be ap-
plied to the diseased spots: A mix-
ture of carbolic acid and lard in the
proportion of one of acid to eight of
lard may be applied to the diseased
spots before sloughing occurs. For
open sores or sloughs use Iodine one
part and vaseline six parts. Apply

Sine.' 1900 the experiment station |
has distributed over 625,000 doses of |
vaccine to the farmers and stockmen <t
of Oklahoma. This represents a to-
tal value of over sixtv thousand dol-
lars at the price usually paid for vac-
cine when purchased in small lots,
such as is required by the average
stockmen who vaccinates from ten to
a hundred calves a year. Vaccina-
tion is the only remedy we have to
offer for this disease. Formerly
many requests were received asking
for a remedy that would cure black-
leg. but experiments with many of
the so-called cures have proven them
worthless, so we have no suggestion
or remedy to offer except to use vac-
cine and to use it only as a means of
The only instrument necessary to
administer the vaccine is a good
stout syringe, and with this any one
with a little care can administer the
vaccine. Young cattle should be vac-
cinated twice a year, in March or
April, and again,in October, it they
are to be vaccinated only once, then
the work should probably be done in
the spring as the disease is more
prevalent then than at any other sea-

remedies may be required to affect a
Intestinal Parasites of the Hog.
There are a number of different
kinds of worms found tn the alimen-
tary canal of the hog but probably
the one most commonly found Is a
large white worm, varying in length
from five to ten inches. This para-
site is usually found in the small in-
tentlne Other common parasite# of
the intestine includes the thorn head
ed worm of the small Intestine, the
pin worm of the rectum and the
Thread worm of the large intestine.
The effect of large numbers of any
of these parasites is to Interfere very
materially with the growth of the
hog. Young hogs and pigs are in-
jured to a greater extent than adults
as they frequently become stunted to
such a degree that it is difflcuit to
get them to growing and thriving as
Generally no care is taken to pre-
vent the hogs from becoming infect-
ed. One infected hog in the lot will,
under ordinary conditions, soon In-
fect all of the hogs in the lot, as the
principal means of spreading the in-
fection Is through the dirt of the
feed lot and by means of surface wa-
ter that is frequently used for the
hogs to drink and wallow in. The
treatment for most of the intestinal
worms is simple and generally very

ment, from a week to a month, for

^ feud has arisen between two par-
ties in the town, and the priest
preached a sermon In which he urged
the peasants to make friends before
they came to church again. They
took him at his word, and on the fol-
lowing Sunday the two hostile parties
marched up the church side by side,
and kissed the altar. Then they sol-
emnly shook hands and kissed one an-
other on both cheeks in the Polish
fashion to seal the reconciliation.
The kissing scene excited loud
laughter among the members of the
congregation, and the priest prosecut-
ed the peasants for unseemly conduct
in church. The court held that a
church is no place for kissing and
found the peasants guilty.
